Urban Meyer, Ohio State leaders revel in Cavaliers' victory parade

Cleveland held a celebration unlike any other the city has seen in more than half a century. And some key Ohio State figures went along for the ride.

A parade for the Cleveland Cavaliers' NBA title brought out Buckeyes football coach Urban Meyer, basketball coach Thad Matta and athletic director Gene Smith for the long-awaited coronation.

While waiting to see Lebron James and the champs, the group also ran into another legendary Cleveland sports hero, Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown:

As part of the parade festivities, the Ohio State band entertained the massive crowd:

Ohio State and the Cavaliers share a bond, as James is perhaps the Buckeyes' No. 1 celebrity fan. He has attended several Buckeyes' games in the Horseshoe and cheered on the Scarlet and Gray during their march to the college football national title in the 2014 season. James has his own locker in the Ohio State basketball complex.

Now there's another champion in Ohio, and Meyer -- who grew up just outside of Cleveland in Ashtabula, Ohio, and has frequently been spotted at Cavs games -- couldn't be happier about it.

Estimates put the crowd at 1.3 million, some of whom camped overnnight for the best spots on the parade route.
